New Renault Megane Sedan Joins The Range

The French company finally revealed the saloon version of the new Megane, bringing the total of bodystyles on offer to three, after the hatchback and the estate.

Judging from the first photos released, the new four-door saloon -offered under the Grand Coupe name in certain countries– is a well-proportioned offering, combining Megane’s familiar front end with a dynamic rear that blends in well with the rest of the styling.

A pair of LED taillights that extend towards Renault’s emblem offer a distinctive lighting signature so the new Renault Megane Sedan can stand out of the crowd whether it’s day or night.

The boot now offers 508lt of capacity, with the company adding a hands-free Easy Trunk Access system. The rest of the car is pretty much standard Megane, meaning the same underpinnings and tech features with the other two bodystyles.

The cabin is the same and includes a seven-inch color TFT display in the driver’s gauges with the dashboard hosting an 8.7-inch portrait-style R-Link 2 infotainment system. Every bit of safety kit first seen on the hatchback and estate model will also be offered here.

Customers will be offered a choice of two petrol and three diesel engine choices, depending on the country. The gasoline range comprises of a naturally aspirated SCe 115 available with a five-speed manual or a CVT gearbox and the turbocharged TCe 130 which is also offered either with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch EDC transmission. The diesel range consists of the dCi 90, the dCi 110 and the dCi 130. All of them are offered with a six-speed manual but the dCi 110 is the only one that can be paired to a six-speed EDC transmission.

Renault will build the new Megane Sedan at their Bursa plant in Turkey and plans to sell it in more than 20 countries around the world, including Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia.

  • Evo45

    I like the rear a lot, it looks so good on this car. I wonder if Renault planning a Coupe and Cabriolet (CC that is) versions of new Megane.

  • J Hod

  • velsatissweden

    Not to be sold in Sweden. Thé importer hates sedan models. They do not import Talisman sedan…

  • nauticalone

    Looks very good…except for single exhaust looks cheap!

  • nauticalone

    Carscoops – can you not collapse the huge Banner once I start scrolling? Especially annoying on phones!

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    A good looking car that as you can see will be largely ignored by western Europe who shun “non-exec” saloons (sedans) in favour of hatchbacks or increasingly hatchbacks on stilts small SUVs….
    A real shame as aesthetically, saloons look far classier to these eyes.
    They even take the mickey by calling some hatches a coupe…

  • Christian

    Looks much better than the now old VW Jetta! Wish we got the C4L too.

  • roy

    So when is it goin coming to India. The fluence is being really old

  • Six Thousand Times

    This, the Koleos, the bigger Kaptur, and the Talisman could, theoretically, bring Renault back to North America. Many a slip twixt cup and lip, though.

  • Thando_Gqabaza

    I don’t see what everyone else is seeing – take away the ugly front light cluster and there’s nothing really new here

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Professional design, but Renault

    don’t start with this grand coupe bullshit…

  • Zed68

    All the latest renaults look absolutely stunning !!

  • S3XY

    Most of these comments have to be trolls

    The front end is just hideous. Ugly headlight shape and that badge is too big. Other than that it looks like a nice clean generic sedan. Nothing special but nice.

    • Thando_Gqabaza

      At last

    • LOVE FORCE ONE

      haven’t you read the news lately? – retarded trolls with money win elections and dictate the design for everything. 100 millions of americans gonna vote for Trump, 20 millions voted for David Cameron, 70 million voted for Putin and Renault are catering to same idiots

  • MarketAndChurch

    The rear 3/4 view looks pretty decent. The front 3/4 view… not so much. But what can you expect from a FWD entry-level car but a stubby cheap-looking frontend? I think it might be a tad over-designed, but it probably won’t look out of place out on the street, under natural lighting.
